Burrell (9-3) is one of the most surprising releases on the list, as he was 1-1 with the promotion and participated in exciting fights against Yuri Villefort and Stephen Thompson.
Hollett (13-5) looked extremely poor in his two showings in the UFC, dropping one-sided decision losses to Matt Hamill and Fabio Maldonado, respectively.
Smith (17-10), Mendez (7-2-1, 1 NC) and Silva (11-1-1) were all one-and-done in the UFC after suffering decisive losses in their Octagon debuts at UFC on FUEL TV 10.
While none of the six releases come as a surprise, this latest crop of cuts proves UFC President White's statements that, "the blood has not all been spilled yet" when it comes to fighters being released from the world's premier mixed martial arts (MMA) organization.
